The Garden City Historical Society’s mission is to keep the unique heritage and history of the Village – both past and present – alive, by engaging all residents through carefully curated events throughout the year.


The Society’s Museum building, one of the original 1872 AT Stewart “Apostle” houses, is a splendid and imposing example of Victorian architecture. It’s elegant high-ceilinged rooms, original decorative details, period furnishings, graceful windows that flood light in during the day and reflect candlelight at evening events, provide the perfect setting for posh parties, musical events, fairs, lectures, art shows, or intimate soirees.


Beyond the Society’s graceful front porch is a wealth of historic structures. Garden City has more buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places than any town on Long Island. Tours that provide access to these homes and other village jewels, like The Cathedral of The Incarnation, are eagerly attended.
